Detailed description

Wonderful boat trip in the Algarve to the sunset with barbecue on the beach

A tour for connoisseurs and romantics: the sea, a boat, dinner on the beach and the sunset. What beautiful ingredients for an unforgettable holiday experience in the Algarve. In the late afternoon you board a modern catamaran (max. 70 passengers) and start the atmospheric boat trip into the sunset in Albufeira. To the west, the enchanting light of the evening sky and the impressive coastal landscape of the Algarve await you. The captain steers a few nautical miles in sight of the land past the imposing grottos and caves and the mighty cliffs, bays and long sandy beaches. Here you can take a look at the abundance of this picturesque holiday region and gain a completely new perspective from the water. Also a small adventure is a component of this evening catamaran journey: the short way from the anchorage of the boat to the small dream beach you put back in a dinghy.

The boat trip in the Algarve leads you however first up to the world-famous cave of Benagil, which is considered rightfully as a nature miracle of the Algarve. The cave looks like a cathedral cast in stone when sunlight falls through the upper hole and water and stone make their own sound. Finally, between Albufeira and Benagil lies the secluded beach chosen by the captain for this atmospheric evening. A place that is not directly accessible from land and thus offers a certain exclusivity. Candles and music will add to the romantic atmosphere on the beach while the crew prepares the barbecue for you. For a sunset dinner you can choose between fish and meat with Algarve-style salads and seasonal fruit. A selection of drinks (beer, wine and sangria) is also included in the price. You can directly choose a spot on the beach and enjoy the wonderful evening atmosphere with a view of the water and the sunset.

The Algarve excursion by boat and BBQ takes about 6 hours in total. This means that you will have plenty of time to enjoy the food on the beach, relax with a drink in the open air and listen to the music that a musician or DJ celebrates to the sound of the sea. With this entertaining atmosphere you will return to Albufeira later in the evening, passing by the lights of the Algarve coast. On your way home, enjoy the dreamlike interplay of sea and coast and the beautiful impressions you gained on the boat trip and during the beach barbecue.


Valid on the reserved day or for 12 months after date of purchase if no date has been selected. You will receive the tour operator's details with the purchased ticket. Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

"Cherry on top"

The whole vacation in the Algarve was great. But this boat trip into the sunset was the "cherry on the cake". Great recommendation from me.

„Cherry on top“

Der ganze Urlaub an der Algarve war toll. Doch dieser Bootstrip in den Sonnenuntergang war die "Kirsche auf dem Sahnehäubchen". Dicke Empfehlung von mir.

They tried hard ...

But the evening only partially satisfied me. That's why there are only four (actually 3.5) stars from me.

Man bemühte sich redlich…

Doch mich hat der Abend nur teilweise zufriedengestellt. Deshalb gibt es von mir nur vier (eigentlich 3,5) Sterne.
